We usually show you the beautiful floral arrangements created by our members for hospice patients in The Woodlands but the general meeting taking place a week later due to Hurricane Nicholas gives us an opportunity for a behind the scenes look at one of our favorite activities, TWGC Floral Group immediately following the meeting. Committee Chair Sherry Copeland efficiently assigned tasks and the meeting room was set up for flower arranging in no time.
Members contribute flowers and greens from their gardens, and Sherry also purchases flowers. Members also bring small vases and containers and every month 50 floral arrangements are delivered to Bristol Hospice and Elara Caring hospice team in The Woodlands. Nurses and caregivers take the pretty vases on their visits to hospice patients – a gift that brings beauty, peace and tranquility, and an unmistakable feeling of love and caring.
Bitsey and Sherry put the finishing touch on each vase with a nice ribbon.
The arrangements are ready for delivery to the hospice agencies.
The Woodlands Garden Club Floral Group meets monthly on the 3rd Tuesday at Sharon’s house. Join us for a fun time, get to know each other, enjoy great conversation, and there is always delicious food.
